I have struggled with this condition chronically for almost the last year. I have spent well over $1,000 on the inserts for my shoes. I have bought various other inserts, pads for my shoes, compression socks, tape you name it and I have tried it. It has gone from one foot to the other and I have been to the point of Tears everyday with no relief. Miley joined a gym if I have gained 30 not being able to exercise or walk and I started in a spin class because it was the only thing that I could do that was not putting weight on my feet. The doctor also put me on a weight loss drug to try to get some of the weight off because it is all so aggravated my RA. It has been a total nightmare but I finally feel like I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel I am actually having some days I can walk around on my feet without being in excruciating pain. Praise God I feel like I am near the end !!!!
